  • Working in harmony to achieve common goals
  • Highlighting individual self expression as a key to building a strong team
Empowerment Music Exercises – Audience as “The Band:”
  • Rocky Dawuni acoustic performance of “Shine A Light,” “Wake the Town,” and “Rock Your Soul” with the audience being taught, and joining in the singing as a group as “the band.” This fun exercise combines the power of communal singing, performance, synchronized clapping and time keeping to strengthen and instill passion, a collaborative spirit and working in harmony towards common purpose and goals
  • One beat exercise : the participants are all provided with drums for a drum circle if available or drum sticks to drum on a table whereby Dawuni leads in starting a beat which is imitated by the audience and then the collective performance of the rhythm. This is followed by the process of everyone creating their own beat but aligning it with the primary beat provided by Dawuni.
  • The audience can also split into groups – creating the rhythm of various parts of the song in the performance and then coming back together for a group performance The purpose of this exercise is also to stress the importance of harmonizing, individual expression and group aspiration .
